Put Down The Big Mac Or You’ll Kill The Planet

My jaw dropped when I read this on Drudge this morning. Here’s a snippet from the UK Sun:

THE rising number of fat people was yesterday blamed for global warming.

Scientists warned that the increase in big-eaters means more food production ā€” a major cause of CO2 gas emissions warming the planet.

Overweight people are also more likely to drive, adding to environmental damage.

Global warming has been blamed on a lot of things, from cars to cow farts. I haven’t seen them blame overweight people until this morning. I shudder to think what the solution would be. Government imposed food rations? A government approved Sweating To The Oldies for the “earth killers”? No, it won’t be anything that tyrannical (yet). Right now, they just want your money in the form of “carbon offsets”. I can just see Al Bore (who needs to lose that tank ass and double chin himself) now going to a Weight Watcher’s initiation with a bunch of guilty leftists who need to lose the L.B.s “For that extra helping you get at supper, you need to contribute X amount of dollars.”

Doug Ross has followed the money and provides the cold hard scientific facts that show temperatures are falling while CO2 (which hardly makes up a greenhouse gas) levels are slightly rising. So far only 34% of Americans right now believe that global warming (or climate change for those who really want to dupe the masses) is happening because of mankind. But they are trying their hardest to get other lemmings to march off the cliff.

So when a eco-nut asks you about Global Warming (or as they prefer “Climate Change”, just tell them that they better find a way to regulate this thing:

  1. Let me see if I understand this… the people who follow this guy are now claiming that being fat is bad for the environment?

    I agree with the basic point that excess consumption of resources is nothing to be proud of. And most any religion will teach that consumption to excess is bad.

    But the problem is, putting these thoughts in the head of environmentalist totalitarians is dangerous, because these people do seek to use government power to force others to conform to what they consider desirable behavior.

    People who exercise are also big eaters. Let’s ban marathons, gyms, and jogging. If fact, let’s ban any movement at all.

    I have one question for all those who claim that manmade global warming is real, and that it is destroying our world:

    Would you feel better if there were irrefutable data that showed that Earth is getting colder?

    Seriously, riddle me that. If mankind were or were not a factor, would the prospect of glaciers advancing down over Canada be a comforting thought to you?
